Koga is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Once, a nameless street rat challenged the tyrant Zhin. For the boy's remarkable skills, Zhin granted him a new life in the Thousands Hands Guild, and a new name: Koga. The Guild was Koga's family and he became their finest ninja. But not all families get along. Jealous lies spread, false evidence was planted, and Zhin's fury forced Koga to flee. Now the exiled ninja fights for his new family -- The Paladins -- as he searches for the one who betrayed him.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Koga is an incredibly mobile flank champion who can swap stances, unlocking other abilities. He also has an energy bar which he uses for all his abilities. His abilities do not have cooldowns, but instead drain his energy. He can swap back and forth from his regular stance, and his Dragon Stance. When in Dragon Stance, his energy is constantly drained. Koga's primary fire are dual SMGs, which are exchanged for for his Hellkite Claws when in his Dragon Stance. The SMGs have a very high rate of fire, in contrast to the Hellkite Claws, which do high damage in burst style. Koga's second ability is a short dash which makes him untargetable for the duration. This uses 1 bar of energy. When in Dragon Stance, he dashes forward, hitting any enemy caught in his path using all his remaining energy. Koga's third ability grants him 50% more movement speed, and increased jump height. This uses 1 bar of energy. He also passively has the ability to climb walls. His ultimate strikes enemies for 1500 damage per second for 2 seconds in an area roughly the size of the payload objective. He is untargetable for the duration. Overall, he is best suited for running and dashing around due to his very low heath pool and high mobility.
